  • Its happened to me too lol. Close your eye. Then with moderat pressure start from the top of your eye (just under your brow) and slide your finger from the top down. Be sure to put some drops in too. Repeat a few times and it will come loose.

    You can also try pulling your eyelid up slightly while looking down, again repeat. If it still won't come loose, then call the eye doc.

  • Wash your hands REALLY well, lift your eyelid, and start moving your eye from left to right. Most of the time it gets caught under your eyelid and if you move your eye around a little, it'll come back to the front where you can grab it.

  • Try flushing your eye with saline solution

  • So i tried some of your suggestions....but now i cant feel it. Lol, Im not sure if it fell out or just went back too far. Is that possible? I dont want to put another contact in yet, just to make sure.
